Logan chose not to tell the investigator who killed his family cause he wants to get them himself. He is taken in by his Uncle Jake who's an ex Army Ranger and a martial arts expert, he teaches Logan martial arts and gets him into the Rangers so that he could prepare himself to go after the people who killed his family.

Imagine if Don Pendleton's "the Executioner" had been made into a feature film.
*Possible spoilers* Of course, it never was. According to urban legend, a mobbed-up studio bought the movie rights to the paperback vigilante so nobody with similar qualities, in real-life, would get any ideas! Thus, over the years, I've satisfied myself with Charles Bronson's first two "Death Wish" movies; Dolph Lundgren's version of "the Punisher" (better than most people give it credit for); and, now "Logan's War." Obviously, it was meant to inspire a TV series. That it failed to do so is no fault of the two lead actors.
I found Mr. Cibrian quite believable as Logan Fallon. And, Chuck Norris (as Uncle Jake) was his usual rugged self. *BTW, I recognized a couple nice homages to previous Chuck movies. The abusive dad-next-door who finally gets a taste of his own medicine, from "the Hit Man." And, the Flying Kick of Death-By-Windshield, from "Good Guys Wear Black."*
At the end, Joe Spano--as Special Agent Downing--tells his partner that the Fallon family's massacre doesn't give Logan the right to act as judge, jury, and executioner. Well, as an average law-abiding citizen (who occasionally hears about "reputed" organized crime-bosses getting undeserved acquittals), if I were a juror at Logan's trial for vigilantism, I would most definitely beg to differ!
